Wild Dolphins Aberdeen Art Sculptures

The Wild Dolphins art project saw 50 interactive sculptures scattered around the Granite City for ten weeks from 23 June 2014 in a special trail. These life size Aberdeen dolphins raised £531.000 funds for the local charity ARCHIE Foundation who support sick children at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital and the WDC, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation charity during a live auction at the Music Hall. Further donations were raised through sponsorship of the statues during their placement. Money raised helped raise funds for the ARCHIE High 10 Appeal. During the auction this surprise mini Dolphin was auctioned and was sold for an incredible £10,000. It was decorated by handprints from some of the patients.

Each dolphin sculpture was uniquely painted by local artists. As each design was different it helped see an increase in tourism in Aberdeen as visitors made use of our hotels and restaurants as well as being fun for locals. Bottlenose dolphins were chosen as the subject because these often inhabit our harbour and surrounding North Sea.

As a Wild Dolphins sponsor, there was a great opportunity to support an unforgettable event and to fulfil marketing and corporate social responsibility objectives in one project. There were two packages of Silver and Gold with various costs between £4000 and £6000. In addition there were also some bespoke community packages available.
